Noble Laurette Professor Wole Soyinka addressed the reason behind his support for Buhari in a new interview with Punch..Read excerpts
A lot of Nigerians still wonder why you chose to endorse the candidature of Muhammadu Buhari. Why did you do that?
I was exercising my democratic right.
So, how do you see Buhari as someone who is competent to rule this country?
Let us put it this way, if this country had gone on the way it was going, the way things were shaping up; if this nation had continued for another two years, in fact, I will say, it would not have lasted two years. So the word, ‘change’ for me, was not a slogan. It is not a mere slogan. The nation needed new hands at the wheels of governance. That is quite clear.
